    The Moment Of Truth

    COMIN' DOWN
    Sledhead Paradise
    nifty forecast
    WALLPAPER:  FINALLY:  GETTING DEEP
    -------  
    .. After a stuttering start, winter is finally knocking on the door.
    .. There was some wind and a couple of inches of snow yesterday.  Today it is dead still and the white fluff is coming straight down. Post card views abound in the village and the dirty smudges are covered up.
    FIND THE FRONT DOOR
    .. There's about 3 feet on the level and, we have a forecast to make a fly fisher smile. Up to 2 1/2 feet of snowfall is forecast for the next 5 days. The high country should get more.
    .. This week and next will push the statistics to the 100%+ range for the year to date [LINK]. We're still having warm days in the mid 20's and low 30's but that is also forecast to change.
    .. Sledheads love the fresh powder. They are less happy about the avalanches and the alerts. The rescue squads are on their toes and, rescue dogs are busy running the test courses.
    REALLY ??
    .. For now, we're optimistic about the continuing accumulation of our snowpack. We're a bit worried about the coming runoff events. If the warm temperatures continue, downstream reaches of our rivers might have some antsy moments.
    -----  
    .. National pizza day easily out-competed national bagel day in our neighborhood. There was even a grilled pizza for the tasting - the black stuff is good for digestion.
    SOME NEIGHBORS ARE TOUGH
    .. Today "ALL THUMBS McGURK" is holding a master class and the ukesters are  serenading the few visitors that have stayed in town for lunch.
    .. We're about to strap on the snow shovel and dig our way out to our fine horse. Tomorrow is a work day and it would be a good idea to be able to find the steed.
